In a world of packaged and fast food, it’s more important than ever that everyone, especially young children, know where their food comes from. That’s why we created an interactive educational tool called Fun Farm, where kids can play games, download projects and learn about how their chicken dinner made it to their plates.
On the Fun Farm, kids can play games like the Matching Mania memory game, test their skills at chicken jig-saw puzzles, or design a virtual T-shirt. There are also interactive games, like Build-a-Barn that gives kids a virtual barn that they have to equip with all the right equipment and supplies necessary to raise healthy chickens.
But fun Farm is about more than just fun – it’s about learning. The site also features a Project Corner with downloadable project ideas and a Teacher's Corner that can be used in the classroom to get kids involved in research projects and tests their skills in science, health, reading, writing, critical thinking, and visual arts.
Teachers can use these lesson plans as part of their curriculum or students can explore them on their own and get their parents involved too. It's a great way to learn and afterwards kids have a better understanding of chickens and farming from the gate to the plate.
Fun Farm is a great virtual place for kids to learn and have fun at the same time. We had a lot of fun building it.
